Welcome to the Sustainability Project:

Small towns face many challenges. Working together we can provide solutions to many of these challenges. We believe that small town living is a lifestyle worth preserving and that we are important contributors to our provincial economy.

For the past century and a half (or so) up until the last five years, Councils' jobs didn't change much from generation to generation. Our parents and grandparents took their turns making decisions for the Town, balanced the budget and took care of the roads, water and sewer, taxation and infrastructure. Many made decisions without a lot of thought to a hundred years down the road, and with little warning about the challenges these communities would eventually face.

We need to work to sustain our communities, to help them in those areas where they are struggling.  In order for a community to thrive and grow it takes:

1. More money flowing in than out.
2. An engaged willing community.
3. A welcoming diverse community.
4. Infrastructure that is maintained and upgraded.
5. A variety of beautification efforts.
6. A strong volunteer component.
7. A progressive knowledgeable council that is transparent.
8. A community 'will' to provide supports for their community.
9. A diverse economy built upon local assets.
10. Housing that is accessible for all stages of income.

I developed the Sustainability Project as a means to provide supports as needed to small population communities in Saskatchewan to meet these objectives.
